Discovery Germany has launched a new Media Centre using Clipsource, offering journalists and partners access to information, schedules, screeners, images and videos about Discovery’s programs.
Clipsource supplies digital media centres to TV companies such as Discovery, Nent, Warner, Sony, HBO and TV4, automating the collection and distribution of media and metadata.
The delivery to Discovery Germany includes:
- A system for collection and merging of data from various internal systems into one metadata structure and sharing process for all Discovery channels and programs
- A new solution for automated distribution of schedules and marketing metadata to external parties
- A new “made for TV” Press Room for next-generation media relations, including secure screeners, media list management, press release distribution, event management etc.
Timo Ditschkowski, Discovery communications and PR manager, said: “Processing and distributing press releases, program information and corresponding metadata has always been a primarily manual, time-consuming process for us. Therefore, we were looking for an agile solution to serve all stakeholders in our ecosystem.
“Luckily we found that Discovery Nordics had been working successfully with Clipsource for years and that we could plug-in to that solution. The new Media Centre allows us to push more content and metadata, with higher quality and easier accessibility, to a much broader range of recipients.”
Clipsource CCO Ola Scholander added: “We are very proud to launch with Discovery Germany and look forward to giving their teams super-smooth workflows, helping them reach their business goals. They will have full access to our platform, to which we constantly introduce new capabilities and features.”
